Passing trade is going to be nil because you've driven past it before you realise it's there? Then just an attractive sign on the road in the Stroud direction, along the lines of "Great food, good ales, Bet you can't resist our chef's special etc" some 400 yards or so before the pub. Yes it's difficult/impossible to see coming from Nailsworth if you're a stranger to the area, but a lot of places world wide are like this and plan the roadside signs accordingly.

better than the old sign for Hattersley newman Henders that ALWAYS said, "Vacancies for arc welders". I never discovered what on earth an arc welder was.

The Crown was not the busiest of pubs when it was open and things have not got any better over the years.

UTTER RUBBISH!

Closing a pub down is not a known method of increasing trade.

it is if there is no chance of making a living from it. I can sell you some rose-tinted specs if you want....oh yes, you don't need them do you.

I will help you with your English comprehension...'things have not got better'....... 'things' refering to the economic climate.

Let me explain the gist of response 6:

It may not be viable to operate a pub at the Crown any longer, but that is no reason to demolish the building.

Why don't we just flatten all old buildings on large plots and replace them with blocks of flats and housing estates?

Because people don't really like living as battery hens do, all cooped up! It's cruel.

I think things have got significantly better in the last 8 or 9 years. Have a look at the type of shop in Nailsworth, for a start.

Oh what a welcome back, looks like nothing's changed, usual old squabbles and stiring Sinnikal embroiled in the centre of it! Happy days... How are you Mr Sin?

A photo of the the old pub in it's current standing state. Will it still be here next year?

I guess it's made of stone and rendered with something. Here is a close up of the rendering!

That photo is really really sad.

When all the pubs of Nailsworth are closed down and turned into retirement flats, I suppose I'll still be able to socialise somewhere like the Mortimer Gardens with a 6 pack and a take-away.

Thanks for the recent photos of the Inn and here it is in about 1910 before the exterior stonework was clad. It was definitely well used when the Newman and Hender workforce were in the area! photo-1228Crown_Inn_Inchbrook.jpg width=500>

Thanks for the photos,Barking and Woz,

Iagree,it would be sad to lose this building,

What about someone down there,reverting it to a pub.

It certainly seems there would be potential,for one of those child friendly play pubs,correct me if im wrong,parents have to travel a few miles,to reach one of these sites?

All this of course if the Crystal plan falls through

PS my Sunday paper round went past this building and I used to be able to ride all the way up the hill next to it----Forget the name---

Need my walking stick nowadays!!

Inchbrook Hill, SR. if you could cycle up that one without a decent but illegal and ruddy dangerous run up from the Bath Road, that was good going mate! It flattened off at the tin tabernacle on the left at the top there.

I was thinking about pedestrian access to the Crown. There was never any footpath cutting down from Inchbrook Hill to the pub, was there? If they do save the pub, and I hope they do, one thing which would help is a foopath access from some point of Windsoredge. Looking at the map I see it would make it much easier for residents of Nortonwood and surrounding area to actually walk there without risking life and limb on the A46.
